Both active and non-active members can be a part of something called "The Buddy system".
Buddy system is a specific part of every Erasmus section. A 'Buddy' is an ESN student that helps incoming Erasmus students prior to and during their Erasmus stay. They help out with paperwork, getting around or anything else Erasmus students might need. Every incoming Erasmus student has the right to apply for a Buddy. Upon students' arrival to Split, they are introduced to the Campus, their buddies, and they are provided with all the necessary information regarding their stay here.
During their stay, Erasmus students are engaged in a plethora of activities organised by ESN Split that meets them with a historical background of Split center, beautiful islands in the region and breathtaking coast and blue sea that is mentioned all around the world. Besides visiting islands, exploring the Mediteranean culture and National Parks, they can be a part of events such as pub quizes, MEet My Country, Language Tandem and more. Social Inclusion team takes care of organizing charity events for both Erasmus and locals (Date Auction, blood donating, dog-walking) cooperating with local asociations like Zvono, MoST, Providnost, NO-KILL Animal Rescue Shelter, local Red Cross etc. Party team is in charge of the best themed parties such as Anything But A Cup, Glow in the Dark Party and Slav Squat Party. With all mentioned, our main goal is to make Erasmus' stay in Split unforgettable and life-changing.
